The recently launched Ghaashphoring Choir, founded, directed and led by musician Armeen Musa, is hosting a midnight performance tonight at Food Republic in Banani.
The show will begin at 11:55pm, and continue till 2am, in order for the audience to have time to catch Sehri afterwards.
Formed in January 2015, the vocal group is confident to give an account of early pieces by SD Burman, Kazi Nazrul Islam and interestingly, some contemporary pieces by Arnob and Souls. They had their debut performance in May.
